Hi guys! Its time for me to apologize for not posting in a while. I just haven't had time and I've been working on my novel. How are you? What are you reading? Are any of you participating in Camp NaNo?
Hi! I'm so sorry I haven't posted in over a week! I've been busy with school the past few days and it's just been an emotional roller coaster I meant post yesterday but unfortunately I've been having some technical difficulties with accessing some of my photos. so fingers crossed the rest of the book challenge and future book tags goes well. I'm finally on spring break and now for this month's book challenge!!! #springintobooks17 21 Book + Candles & 22 Show off your fave color
One of my favorite colors is purple and I'm happy how the photos turned out hoping to post more of these in the future
I've been on a bit of a fantasy kick lately! There's nothing quite like getting wrapped up in an alternate universe, especially one with beautiful dresses and magic
Caraval's been getting a lot of attention, and rightly so. Who's read the book already?
"She confused being a spartan with being charitable, and gave away her possessions without truly doing good with them.
She confused being sick with being brave, and suffered agonies while imagining she merited praise for it.
She confused wit with intelligence, and made people laugh rather than lightening their hearts or making them think."

"Love, love, I know what you are." -- George Saunders, Lincoln in the Bardo
I couldn't possibly do this book any ounce of justice by saying anything original about it since what makes it so remarkable is its understatement. Saunders is able to bring forth so much -- and such a range of -- emotion with so little. "I laughed, I cried" might be a cliche but I found myself on the brink of both within the span of a page here.
I will say that the portrait of Lincoln was unexpectedly one of my favorite parts. (Though his name is literally the first word of the title, I went into this book anticipating more the spirits and their voices, rather than the president as character.) And like many of you I'm sure, Lincoln was one of the first historical figures I admired. He was honest Abe. Kind and fair and soft-spoken and intelligent. We were taught to love him as much as we were taught his accomplishments. And beyond remarking over the contrast in his before and after presidency pictures, did we ever truly pause to think about the grief and burden this president bore? Saunders more than makes up for that lack of understanding in his unparalleled blend of spiritual voices and source snippets.
Now, onto the audiobook.
